Hard Work Pays!


Hard work pays..
Isn't it true?
You want evidence..
I'll give you two.

I, m a Parliamentarian,
Parliamentarian of the biggest Democracy,
One and one of its only kind.
To be one was not a meager beat,
I had to perform some astonishing feats.

The lord, the lady, the peddler, the beggar
None did i skip
A toil of two score,
I knew would give me a score.
Yes! Hard Work Pays!

I work hard to shirk,
Killing, smothering and suffocating
Are arts i'm dexterous at,
Coz i, am the member of Parliament!
I work hard,
And Hard Work Pays.

Twelve years have passed..
What so, if i'am behind bars,
My days will never seize to be a past.
The floor will forever proclaim.
I will have my claim.

The all important vote to cast
Or else, the Government will be sacked
One crore..two crore,
Not crores... it's millions...! !

What so, if i'm behind bars,
I'am the richest Parliamentarian
The richest Parliamentarian!
Of the Biggest Democracy! !

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
